Naked Mole Skin: Hardywood, glad to see you back in The Gloom. You have been missed. Grady, great to see you again in RVA from Raleigh. So, there was really not a lot of coaching, but hold one’s own body weight for an extended period will crush your shoulders and arms. Upchuck, thank you for the support on 6 pack. Swirly, glad things are on the mend with your M and family. Dr. Tryhard, Flipper’s work is outstanding for IT bands! It seems coffee in The Gloom is catching on!
YHC wanted to honor all those wearing a uniform so a few more minutes were taken today. This weekend, take a minute and remember those in uniform and all those that paid the ultimate to allow us the freedom to work out at 0530!
Only those who post understand. Thank you for following this morning.
Loud and Proud,
